Mike Goodfriend is ready to speak to your leadership team, lunch ‘n learn audience or professional association:
Achieving Leadership Development Breakthroughs
Now more than ever, organizations are investing in their next generation of leaders. Organizations are expecting a return on that investment through those leaders having greater influence on business outcomes within their own team or cross-functionally. Mike Goodfriend will share methods to utilize vulnerability, personal motivators and peer-to-peer business competitions to drive leadership development breakthroughs.
Supercharge Your Strategic Planning
Strategic planning can be a highly interactive process to achieve clarity and alignment for your organization or function. But not all strategic planning processes are created equal. This session will focus on supercharging the process through compelling “Shark Tank” style business cases or vigorous Lincoln Douglas style debates of potential strategic initiatives.
The Cross-Functional Business Opportunity – Be a Leader
Cross-functional business opportunities do not always get the attention they deserve. A market opportunity or an end-to-end process transformation can go unrealized without a leader who has the skills in influencing others, project management, teamwork and alignment. Mike will share the lessons he has learned in working with cross-functional teams.
What I Have Learned From Baseball
Baseball is a great metaphor for business and life. Mike Goodfriend has been a Little League baseball coach, a 14 year player in the Houston Hardball League and a lifelong baseball fan. Mike will focus on how we can learn from baseball to become more effective leaders and team members – the double play, the strikeout, the home run, the unwritten rules, and the terminology.
